After spending last weekend promoting my new Shamrock and Peach tours for 2015 in Gainesville, GA I was really inspired watching a new video about Ireland. This fun New York times video captures the heart of Dublin, it’s people, dining and energy. It’s always great to go home and find comfort in that some things like Irish history or culture but exciting to see new changes in the Irish food scene. The traditions of Irish food are still preserved but the new world edge prevails in every gastronomic bite in both Dublin and Belfast’s restaurant scene. The Irish understand how they do not need to reinvent the wheel only make it better.
Guinness tastes better in Dublin than any where else in the world. Some people say it’s the Irish water that makes the difference, but you just got to try it where it originated. You cannot go home from a trip in Ireland without having a pint of the famous black stuff.
Next year I am ready to go back and explore what is new and find solace in the fact that most things just do not change in Ireland. I like to expect the unexpected but sometimes the unexpected is that Ireland is just what you expect.
Dream of Ireland and go!
